so a crazy man executes an abortion provider in a church. his defense is he's guilty of voluntary manslaughter. yes killing him was wrong but in the mind of the crazy person was the lesser evil. the difference is the death penalty vs 5 years. let's think about that one for just a minute. okay crazy person. when you are released will you seek out and kill others like your first victim? yes, of course. am i justified in putting a gun to your head and pulling the trigger to save their lives? how about drug dealers? or the owners of coal mines? or the president? hrm. so far the court has said they'd entertain allowing the jury to consider that lesser charge. i guess it depends on the facts presented in the case. hopefully, the court will have time to reflect on the sheer stupidity of that ruling. or maybe it's a cruel trick. raise the guy's hopes that he can get away with murder. then sentence him to death. muhahahahahah! timmer for judge jury and executioner. course, that's exactly what this case is about.
